Community Housing Scotland

Twitter: @CommHousingScot

Since 1998, Highlands Small Communities Housing Trust (HSCHT) and more recently trading as Community Housing Scotland (CHS) out- with Highland, have been driving forward and facilitating a wide range of community-led housing initiatives. But what does this term ‘community-led housing’ really mean?

Community-led housing is about local people playing a leading and fundamental role in solving their specific housing problems, creating genuinely long-term, affordable homes and strong, resilient communities in ways that are difficult to achieve through mainstream housing alone.

It is a broad movement encompassing a range of approaches, including Community Groups, Development Trusts, cooperatives, co-housing, and can involve new build, self-build, regeneration or the use of existing buildings.

Community Housing Scotland can provide a mix of services to cater to the different needs of our service users. Services offered by CHS include:

  • Advice and information
  • Community meetings
  • Housing surveys
  • Help with acquiring land
  • Consultation appointments
  • Facilitate appropriate support and/or partnerships
  • Project feasibility
  • Support with funding applications
  • Project management
  • Development assistance
  • Bespoke solutions
